The handgun used to shoot and kill Tupac Shakur back in September of 1996 was reportedly found in a Compton backyard. However, new reports indicate the gun’s current location is a mystery.
The latest detail in the cold case involving the beloved rapper was discovered after documents were found outlining the gun’s disappearance.
In 1998, an unidentified citizen called Compton police after finding a 40 calibre gun in his backyard.
Police arrived and records show the handgun was booked on May 30, 1998 as found property. In 2000, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department took over the Compton Police Department and confiscated about 3,800 firearms, including the Glock used in Tupac’s murder.
Tupac was killed in Las Vegas, on September 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting. He was 25 years old. Since he died, the mystery of his murder or death is yet to be resolved.
